2008

It is more usual on the last day of the year to look backwards, and contemplate the year past.

I am not going to do that. I want to look forward.
To all the good things ahead.

January: Another chance to win an Aurealis Best Fantasy Novel in the coming month. (Ok, I am not really expecting that one, but well, it's nice to have a chance. And if I don't, Jenny Fallon might, and that's almost as good...)

February: French version of The Aware out - my first trade paperback, from J'ai Lu. It's called La Clairvoyante.

March: Being a guest at a sff con. First time, and in my home city. Swancon/Australian Natcon, Easter. Perth. Be there. Seeing all my Oz friends/family. And a bit of down time with Karen Miller beforehand. Nice.

March-April: Wandering off with my sister around the wild southern coast of Australia, camping out under the stars ... ah. That's food for the soul.

May 1st: Song of the Shiver Barrens out in the UK.

August: Worldcon, Denver, USA. My first US con. Sharing a room with pal Donna. First time in Colarado. Yay on all counts.

August, or maybe July. Or sometime in 2008 anyway. A very special wedding of someone close to my heart. Maybe in Hawaii.

August-September: Looking after gorgeous grandson over in Virginia.

The rest of the year is still up for grabs...but I reckon it's looking pretty good from here.

How about you all?

Anyway, Happy 2008!!!!

I should be at Worldcon, and I live near Virginia; other than that, I don't think I'll be at any of your other 2008 events. Oh, wait...that's not what you meant! ;-)

Ru, enjoy your "makan"...

Thanks, Karen Anon - and the same to you. Hope you get those books done...

Kendall - you're going to Worldcon? We will have to meet up. Dunno about the "close to" Virginia, though ...lol.

:-) Love to. Speaking of which, I meant to ask--do you expect/hope to be doing a reading and/or panels?

Glenda Larke said...

Yes, I am going to fill in the online thingy about participating. Soon.

Groovy! :-)
